Stayed on Zanzibar at Amaan Bungalows Zanzibar - Dec 2013
Hi Rose,

Compliments of the season to you! Thought I would drop u a mail just to say thanks for everything with regards to the booking at Amaan Bungalows on Zanzibar. Everything was perfect, and we didn’t encounter any hiccups. I have attached some pics of Amaan Bungalows for you to maybe use when with future bookings, the website really didn’t do it much justice.

Thank you again

Stayed on Zanzibar at Neptune Pwani Beach Resort and Spa Zanzibar - Aug 2013
Hi Rose,

We had a fantastic time on Zanzibar! Neptune Pwani Beach Resort was brilliant, Julijana loved her birthday cake and all the attention. There was lots for the little kids to do and the teenagers. Mum relaxed, I spent a lot of time in the spa :-)
Your ground agents were friendly and helpful. They took us on ‘safari blue’ this was the whole family’s favourite day by far!!

Thank you so much.

Rose,

Baie dankie vir ‘n wonderlike vakansie. Ons kon nie vir beter gevra het nie. Ons het dit baie geniet en die plek was perfek.

Baie dankie vir al jou reëlings als was seepglad. Dankie en ek hoop ons boek gou weer by jou.

Stayed on Zanzibar at Sea Cliff Resort and Spa - April 2013
Hi Rose,

It has been a while. I trust that you are well. We had an AWESOME time in Zanzibar, thanks to you:) Sea Cliff Resort was lovely, and so were the tours we went on! I must say, I was quite surprised with the rest of the country (well the bit we drove through)..I thought it would be more modern, clean, etc. But those were just my thoughts. The beaches were beautiful, and so was learning about the history of the country.
Julian Sambo at Sea Cliff Resort and Spa on Zanzibar
Overall, the experience was great. I hope you have had a chance to go Zanzibar. If not, I would recommend you go and see for yourself:) Many thanks again on all your assistance.
I have recommended other friends to contact you for such travel packages, so I am sure they will soon be in touch. We will most definitely require your services in future when we plan we plan another trip elsewhere. Oh, I will send you our picture as soon as I get them onto my computer.

Kind regards,
Julian Sambo

Stayed on Zanzibar at Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club - February 2013
Hi Rose,
Thank you once again for your brilliant service and your friendliness. I am so glad we decided to book through you! Our trip went smoothly with no problems. Sandies Mapenzi Beach Resort is so beautiful, with superb service and friendliness. The entertainment was such fun during the day and the evening and our room on the beach was perfect. We definitely picked up a few kilo's as the food was mouth-watering! We will definitely recommend you to anybody, and will never use anybody else again.
Annelien Van Heerden at Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club on Zanzibar
Thank you for making it a memorable trip!

Stayed on Zanzibar at Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club - December 2012
Hi Dawie,
Sorry I have been so slack at contacting you after our return. We had an absolutely amazing holiday at Sandies Mapenzi. Against the odds we got there no problem. Our flight out on mango was fantastic - only 20 people on board so had the run of the plane and plenty of seats to sleep on. Having been up at 2.30 a.m. that was much appreciated! Mapenzi was great - they have really gone out of their way to create a special place - from the New Years Eve banquet to the poolside dinner, the children enjoyed joining in some of the activities such as the archery and the bowls on the beach, and we had
Jill Hosking family on Zanzibar at Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club
fun joining in the water polo! We loved the spice farm tour, Stone Town was so unbelievably hot that it was a challenge to enjoy it but we are pleased to have learnt something of the history of Zanzibar. Safari Blue was stunning and we loved the snorkeling and the lunch on the small island. Where do they produce those seafood platters from??? All in all an amazing, chilled, HOT holiday - just what we needed!! Only downside was the trip back and the waits in Zanzibar airport and Dar es Salam airport - not fun!! Hope they get that direct route sorted out soon as we would love to go back. Thanks again for all your trouble in getting us there.
Regards the Hoskings

Hi Dawie
Complements of the new year, we wish you the best of 2013.
We just want to say thank you so much for planning our Honeymoon. Zanzibar is such a beautiful, relaxing and amazing place. We indeed experienced the best time as a newly wedded couple.
We are looking forward to your extraordinary services with regards to our next vacation.
Words can’t begin to explain how grateful we are to you.
Phumudzo at Diamonds Dream of Zanzibar
Despite all the challenges faced with one time airlines, you did everything in your power to make alternative arrangements for us.The land transfer guys you arranged for us from the airport to the hotel were very professional and they knew a lot about the history of Zanzibar. Not forgetting the service we received from the hotel staff members it was really a five star treatment :-).
Your services are of high and quality standards!!!!!

Please find attached some of the memories we created.

Regards
Mr. and Mrs. Mudau

Stayed on Zanzibar at Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club - November 2012
Good morning Dawie,
We are back safely from our Zanzibar trip! All the arrangements/bookings you made for us went off well and we had a fantastic few days in ‘paradise’! Sandies Mapenzi Beach is a great venue for a trip like this and we felt really treated and spoilt. I also had great fun with my camera and lenses! We only return to Hermanus on Thursday and I will send you a few brag pictures once we are home – unfortunately I have left the camera/pc cable back home! Thank you for a wonderful prize which we enjoyed thoroughly.
Kind regards

Jaco Benade
Stayed on Zanzibar at Diamonds La Gemma Dell est - October 2012
Hi Rose,
We would just like to thank you very very much for all the effort you put into making this amazing trip possible. Everything was in place as requested and we experienced absolutely no issues thanks so much for the top class service. Everything was in place and organized beforehand, the flights, the accommodation, the visas etc.. We got married on Saturday the 13th October and our flight was on Monday morning 00:40 so we were on the airport 21:00 Sunday evening already. We experienced no issues on our flights, we flew from OR Tambo to Kenya then we had connecting flights from Kenya to Zanzibar, but let me tell you the stop-over at Kenya we were so incredibly
Jaco Benade on Zanzibar at Diamonds La Gemma Dell est
tired we couldn’t keep our eyes open! That was first time we ever fell asleep sitting upright waiting for a flight. But when the plane flew over Kilimanjaro it was the wait and tiredness all worth it what an amazing sight !!!
We flew Kenya airlines from OR Tambo to Kenya then Precision Air from Kenya to Zanzibar and both were very good airlines and highly recommended.

We touched down about 11:00 Monday morning the 15th and boy was it hot and humid, it literally feels like a hair-dryer is blowing constantly in your face. After we picked up our suitcases the friendly driver from Island Express was waiting for us as promised. It was about an hour’s drive from Zanzibar airport to Diamonds La Gemma del ‘Est, an interesting drive and the driver is really very knowledgeable and found the drive very enlightening. After about an hour we were welcomed at Diamonds La Gemma del ‘Est, my word what an amazing hotel I can’t describe how beautiful it is, we were welcomed with a frozen face towel and a cocktail, which after an hour in a car was very needed! The staff is really the best in the world I can’t describe how helpful and wonderful the staff are it’s really a class of service I have never experienced here in South Africa.

After this we were taken to our rooms which are so beautiful and there was a bottle of champagne and a fruit platter waiting for us on arrival, the best thing about the room was the air conditioner, it is really a must over there! When considering the package the All-Inclusive is a must, the food is something out of this world and all the drinks are included, the best thing is you can sit inside the swimming pool and order cocktails all day long. At night you must go and enjoy a cocktail and the deck, it’s a cocktail bar built over the water where you can drink cocktails and see the fishes swimming below. Usually they have shows with African dancers and you can play pool while enjoying the show we really enjoyed the pier a lot. Came back about 8kgs heavier the food and drink is that good! There are about 5 restaurants on the resort you can choose from so you needn’t ever get bored with the food choices.

There was so much to do on the resort we literally only had time for 1 tour, we did a Safari Blue tour and boy what an experience it is highly recommended, basically they take you out for a day on the water with various stops for snorkelling, swimming and eating a traditional lunch on a little island just off Zanzibar. We even saw Dolphins on the day. Then we also booked ourselves in for a Spa session which was so relaxing, it is a must if you visit Diamonds La Gemma del ‘Est. But all good things come to an end and we were really emotional on the Sunday the 21st when we had to come back and once again no issues experienced on our flights back. But we plan to go back some day and will definitely make use of Dream World Adventures again, this time we plan to do the Spice Tour, Stone Town, Prison Island etc, next time we definitely need to go for longer than a week.

This is one top notch travel agency and I already recommended you guys to a friend that plans to go to Zanzibar next year.
Thanks again and regards,

Jaco and Carle.
P.S. Sorry for only coming back to you now but right after our trip we started with examinations.

Baie Baie dankie vir al julle reelings met my vakansie!

Dit was beslis die BESTE vakansie ooit. Van ons daar geland het was ons op die hande gedra, ek sal beslis Sandies Mapenzi aanbeveel vir al my vriende wat wil gaan.

Stayed on Zanzibar at Diamonds Dream of Zanzibar - June 2012
Hello Rose, I trust that you are well.
I tried calling you earlier to say thank you very very much for all of the help with arranging our holiday to Zanzibar at Diamonds Dream of Zanzibar. It was truly magnificent. I tend to be a difficult customer, and it is not often that my expectations are exceeded, this was a case in a point. All the way through from the logistics before the trip, to the excellent ground staff and tour guides Dawie arranged for us on the island and the magnificent resort you suggested we were simply blow away.
David Chellan at Diamonds Dream of Zanzibar
Thank you so much Zanzibar was really special, in fact we planning on going back :-) and will look no further than Dream world.

Take care and keep in touch.

Stayed on Zanzibar at Arabian Nights Zanzibar - June 2012
On behalf of the group (11 Queens and 1 king) I would like to thank you for ensuring that our Trip was a success. The staff at Arabian Nights were excellent and we were warmly received and well looked after. The manager, Mr Masoud, especially, went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as possible and we spent some lovely quality time with him over coffee in the evenings. The shuttle service provided was also excellent and on time. We were able to enjoy almost all aspects of the Zanzibar experience (except riding in the dala dala). Gail  Neethling group at Arabian Nights Zanzibar Island
Since we visited Zimbabwe (Vic falls) in 2011 and now Zanzibar, we feel that we have now exhausted Africa for now. We are looking Towards and Eastern trip for the future. Any suggestions by you will be welcomed.
I am still in the process of gathering the (millions) of photographic footage from the group, and will e-mail you the best ones in due course.
Best wishes Gail Neethling and Kevin van Blommestein

Dear Dawie
Just a quick note to thank you for your efficiency in planning our Zanzibar trip. Everything went very smoothly and we so enjoyed the experience. Your people on Zanzibar were great and we had superb service from them too. Zanzibar will always have a special place in my heart – especially since that is where I got to swim with dolphins and tick that off my bucket list! I will send many referrals your way.
Kind regards Gina Ryan

Dear Dawie

Thank you so much for welcome back sms. Thank you so much for organising the trip to Zanzibar on our behalf, it was well planned and everything ran smoothly. We never had to queue for anything, our visas and travel cards were organised and it really saved us time at the airport.
The staff members at Sandies Mapenzi were really warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived until the last day. They kept us busy with different activities everyday and we had fun.
Pali and Nthabi at Sandies Mapenzi Beach Club on Zanzibar
They really made my birthday on the 21st May very special, there were flowers everywhere, in my room, dining area and even baked a special cake for me. I celebrated my 40th birthday in Kwale Island in the middle of the ocean with my friend Palesa. We have used the service of the beach boys for our excursion because we wanted to know more about Zanzibar for example their culture, religion and interact with the local people. We went to different places (Safari Blue Tour (Kwale Island), Prison Island, Spice Tour, Stone Town and Nugwi Village) and enjoyed every moment of the tours. We have been telling our friends that pictures don’t lie, the Zanzibar beaches are really blue and the sand is pure white, the view is magnificent!. I have attached the pictures.

Thank you so much for everything and I am going to recommend Dream World to all my friends and family.

Hi Rose,

So much to do, so little time!! It is very hard work to unpack all the wedding gifts... :) But WOW! What an amazing time in Zanzibar. All the people were so friendly and accommodating. And everything went really smooth. It really helped to organize all the excursions from South Africa beforehand. All the taxies and tour guides were always on time! I thought we would experience some ‘African time’, but everything was spot on! A pleasure! :)
Charl van Niekerk on Zanzibar at Sandies Neptune Pwani
We went on 4 scuba dive excursions with Zanzibar Watersports. They are very reasonably priced and don’t charge additional costs for paying with credit cards! They also have their own taxis and drivers, so the pickup from the resorts were inclusive with the 4 dive package(2 days). The team is multi-national and not only do they present the dives in perfect PADI-style, but also make each person feel welcome and at ease in a foreign country. We enjoyed the company’s manner of working so much, we continued to book a sunset cruise with them as well! What a delight!
Thanks again for all your arrangements and making sure that everything was hassle-free!! We had an overall grand time!! Absolutely worth it!! We attached a few pics with SUPER SMILES! It’s impossible to capture it all, but here you see some highlights!
Kind regards,
Charl and Anneke

HI Rose, I just want to thank you in writing for your VERY efficient service. It was a pleasure to work with someone so willing to go the extra mile! Thank you sincerely! You found us the perfect hotel, it was good to have the Tanzanian visa already in place and everything went very smoothly with the Island Express taking us to and from the airport. Thank you for responding to emails so quickly – what efficiency! Even though it was a short visit, we had the most wonderful time! A little bit of paradise away from our busy lives! God bless and thank you again! Next email will have a couple of photos!! Liz Liz and Anthony Castleden at Sandies Mapenzi
